People are freaking out over these jewelry-inspired temporary tattoos at The Geisha House. Boutique owner Cortney Cohen tells us they've been "killer popular," and they transfer just like the old-school temporary tattoos of yore.

Be warned: Despite their delicate appearance, the metallic tats stay put for up to six days (more like two days for the finger tattoos) and require a little elbow grease and baby oil to remove. Body art for the non-committal!
